Named after the exotic dancers on the island of Bali, the Balinese cat breed has a very distinctive look but is actually a long-haired Siamese cat.
The Unique Look of the Balinese Cat
One thing that stands out is the look of the Balinese cat. While it is the same as a Siamese, just a long-haired version, the long coat makes a big difference with this cat breed. The Balinese has the same angular head and piercing blue eyes but the body looks soft and silky with the longer coat.
